Sexual Assault Awareness Week 2013
Sexual Assault Awareness Week is intended to raise on-campus awareness about the realities of sexual assault and provide support to survivors. This week is a time to come together and break the silence surrounding this issue. By uniting together, we will stand up and work to end the violence that happens everyday.
Sexual Assault Awareness Week (April 8-12, 2013) offers the USD community opportunities to learn more about the prevalence of sexual violence on college campuses and take action to “shatter the silence and stop sexual violence.”
A student art exhibit will be on display in the Hahn UC/SLP Exhibit Hall throughout the week. Created by student survivors, the pieces engage viewers to learn about consent, survivor empowerment, general statistics and myths/facts. The Clothesline Project will also be displayed throughout the week in front of the UC, KIPJ, and in the Valley.
Spoken word artist, Rudy Francisco will be performing and hosting a brief workshop on Monday, April 8 at 5:30 p.m. in the SLP 3rd Floor Courtyard on how to engage issues of social justice and empower survivors through art.
“Consent: Why it Matters” discussion will be hosted by Sexual Assault Peer Educators on Wednesday, April 8 at 7 p.m. in the SLP 4th Floor.
"Take Back the Night" will be held on Thursday, April 11 beginning at 5:30PM at Hahn UC/SLP Plaza Menor. Join the march and vigil to support and empower survivors of sexual assault.
